The Sacred Bath

This is so easy but so relaxing and you can make it right in your

5 drops of Lavender essential oil
1/4 cup powdered milk.

Add 1 cup of water to the milk powder and stir to combine.
Add to bath along with the drops of oil. Enjoy the fragrant soak.

Note this can be made in bulk and given as gifts with other Lavender products in a basket.
1/2 cup dried or 3 cups packed fresh herbs
1 8-inch square of muslin or cheesecloth

Center the herbs in the fabric, bring the edges together, and secure tightly with string. To soften the water, you can add dried milk powder or a few teaspoons of oatmeal. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil blend to complete the experience. Allow the bag to float in the water as the bath fills, or leave the string on and tie it to the tap so that the water runs through it as the bath fills.

This spell will refresh and cleanse you. To begin, cast a circle in your bathroom.
Call the elements, and light a lavender colored candle.
Then blend in a muslin bag a teaspoon each of lavender flowers, chamomile flowers, and dried crushed rosemary. Hang the sachet under the faucet, and draw your bath water, allowing it to pour down through the herbs. Add a half cup of lemon juice to the bath. When you settle into the tub, lean back, relax, and take three deep breaths.
Close your eyes and focus on the excess tension and stress in your body. Feel the herbs and lemon draw it out of your muscles and mind. Thoroughly clean your tub when you are done to remove any residue of negative energy from the bath water.
